If you're not ready to step up to a Chris King, this is a great replacement headset. The price is right, it's a breeze to install (the split crown race race can be installed and removed without tools), it's reasonably durable, and the sealed bearings are replaceable. Weather sealing is not fantastic on these bearings, so if you ride in wet, salty conditions without fenders, you may eventually need to replace the lower bearings. FSA makes a quality, well machined product, right down to the solid aluminum cap.

Good upgrade from the cheap headset that came on my bike. Nothing sticks out as being overly impressive, but feels natural and costs a lot less than other headsets. Longevity not sure on though.
